Kenan Thompson Might Be Leaving Saturday Night Live for His Own Sitcom

  • Kenan Thompson Set to Star in Single Dad Comedy for NBC

Thompson recently told Deadline that he'd happily stay on Saturday Night Live "forever", but should Saving Larry go to series, he likely would exit the show-at least as a full-time cast member, the report said.

In Saving Larrry, Thompson would play "a father who is left to parent his kids after the death of his wife with his father-in-law hovering over him". He now holds the record of the longest-serving SNL cast member ever, having been at the show since 2003. Universal Television will produce along with Michaels' Broadway Video.

Should the project get picked up to series, Thompson would reportedly leave his post at SNL to focus on the show. He also scored a 2018 Emmy nomination in the Supporting Actor in a Comedy category for his work in Season 43. He and Chris Redd, Will Stephen, and Eli Brueggemann won the Emmy this year for original music and lyrics for their song "Come Back Barack".

Fun Fact: Thompson and Kel Mitchell were the first Black stars of a Nickelodeon primetime sitcom when Kenan & Kel made its debut in the summer of 1996.
